MBA – Accessing Capital and What Entrepreneurs Should Be Doing Now

Minority Business Alliance March 31, 2020: Accessing Capital and What Entrepreneurs Should Be Doing Now

The Chamber Minority Business Alliance is doing its part of ensure minority businesses not only survive but thrive during and following this crisis that has hit our business community hard. More than 40 members of the business community being impacted by the pandemic joined MBA on our first virtual meeting March 31, 2020, to hear from business experts with knowledge of and access to financial resources available to entrepreneurs and small business owners.

With great appreciation, we say THANK YOU to our MBA panelists listed below. Each greatly contributed to a treasure trove of information today that many of our participants have found quite useful based on action, communications, and follow ups thus far. Their servant leadership is apparent as they represent the relationships that embody the Minority Business Alliance's mission of leveraging partnerships to create community wealth building.
